apples
Craft sticks
1
(14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
2
tablespoons milk
water

TO GARNISH (optional)

1
cup chopped nuts
1
cup candy corn candies
1
cup mini chocolate chips
1

Steps

  • 1 Bring 3 inches of water in a medium saucepan to a boil.
  • 2 Insert a craft stick into the top end of each apple.
  • 3 Dip the apples, 1 at a time, into the boiling water for 20-30 seconds, this will remove the wax coating on the apples. Dry thoroughly and place onto a sheet pan lined with parchment or wax paper.
  • 4 Prepare the caramel by adding caramel candies and milk to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stay close and stir often while the candies melt. Once melted, remove from heat and allow to sit about 1 minute.

  • 6 If desired, dip the bottoms of each apple into nuts, chocolate chips or other garnish.

Expert Tips

For a layer of chocolate, once the caramel has cooled completely, dip the apples into melted chocolate, then nuts or desired garnish.

Place the cooled caramel apples into gift baggies, tie with a pretty ribbon or string and give as take-home favor or gift at your next party.
